Product Highlights
  • Dual 9-pin FireWire 800 Ports
  • Single 6-pin FireWire 400 Port
  • Native PCIe Chipset, No Bridge
  • Data Transfer Speeds of up to 800 Mbps

The 3 Port 2b 1a 1394 PCI Express FireWire Adapter Card from StarTech.com can be installed in a PCI Express slot. With dual IEEE1394b ports and single IEEE1394a port, it provides broad compatibility with a whole range of FireWire devices (e.g. DV camcorders, external hard drives, digital cameras, etc.). This adds 3 FireWire ports to a standard or small form factor computer enabling support for high powered FireWire devices. It features a native single chip PCI Express chipset which results in fast, reliable performance. Using this card, you can add high speed FireWire port to any desktop. One of its great applications is that a high speed external hard drive or digital camera can be connected to a PCI Express enabled system.

Note! The software included with this product supports a "typical" driver install only. Custom driver setup requires software purchase from a 3rd party.

            Comments about StarTech 3 Port 2b 1a 1394 PCI Express FireWire Adapter Card:

            We needed a firewire card for our new editing computer and this one is a great choice. It offers 6 & 8 pin options for folks who still need a firewire application. This one worked great and we use it to capture video from our studio while recording and to input video from cameras and decks. Keep in mind that the PC you use should have a power supply that has the necessary cable to hook up the card as it will need to be powered.

                    I use my rig for music and video production. I wanted native firewire support for my GA-Z77X-UP5TH. This card fit the bill perfectly.
